To Granny and Granddad

Heritage Day 2016, we decided to have our last braai at our cottage with the family as in a month’s time if all goes well we should be moving into our new home in the mountains.

But nature had another plan, we woke up to a plague of flies. Staying in the farming area on the banks of the Jukskei River does not help as we are surrounded on all sides by horses, cows, goats, pigs, chickens, geese, turkeys, and crops. We had a plague of flies about 2 summers ago but nothing last summer. It was ghastly, do we cancel or do we go ahead with of planned family day?

We decided to go ahead and do our best to maintain our composure as we beat back the relentless flies. The braai was a success and we were rewarded with an invitation envelope with the inscription “To Granny and Granddad” from our granddaughter, Rebekah. Yay party time in 3 weeks as we celebrate Rebekah’s first birthday!
